My DirecTv remote is not working.

My DirecTv remote is not working. The green light flashes, volume will only change by 1 unit as you hold down the button, the up/down arrows don't work but the page up/down buttons work sometimes, and the guide button works. Nothing else!

    Remote 'might' be dying. Try brand new batteries (if you have some) to be sure. Replacement remotes are free if you have protection plan, $15 if not. You can call 1-800-531-5000 and have troubleshooting done and one sent out. Many Walmart and Best Buy stores carry them as well.
